Happy Feb 13 today! Tonight’s aurora forecast calls for Kp 2. This means that in clear areas the northern and interior part of Alaska should see lights tonight. Anchorage area, only a chance at the northern horizon.
The small and unlikely possibility of an early arrival of a coronal mass ejection exists. The forecast time for arrival is approx 12 noon Alaska time Sunday the 14th. Experienced aurora chasers know that the time is never spot on, so we will be ready both very early in the morning on Sunday as well as the forecast time of arrival. We are expecting a tell tale shock wave, then we will get the heads up the storm is approaching. If it arrives in our daytime here in Alaska, then northern Europe will get the first blast. I will post another update when needed. If anything changes, I will definitely update a new post and social media.
Are you looking for the perfect way to spend this Valentine’s Day? Book your own private photo shoot under the Aurora! As of this post, there is only one slot open on Sunday night, but other dates are available. Call (253)254-3271 or send a message to Sean Kurdziolek Photography
